Two separate studies (2008 on 13,000 women and 2010 on 28,000 women) indicate that cell phone usage while pregnant results in a statistically higher percentage of children with behavioral difficulties. If the children themselves used cell phones before puberty, the likelihood of behavioral abnormalities increased by 50%. The studies also confirmed that mom’s health habits especially the foods that she  eats affects the child’s food preferences. Mom’s who had trouble getting pregnant, suffered from Chronic Fatigue or Depression, had Autoimmune Disease, heavy metal toxicity, Diabetes, and a whole host of other conditions have also been shown to have a greater likelihood of behavioral and Autistic Spectrum problems.

Is it worth the risk? As with tobacco and “FDA approved” drugs, it may be a long time before the effects of electromagnetic frequencies (EMF’S) are fully investigated. Animal studies have shown that EMF’s in the same frequency as cell phones can impact liver, heart, endocrine, and muscle tissue and may even alter DNA. According to Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, a nervous system expert, this is exactly what is happening and the genes that “flip” as a result of EMF damage may cause Muscular Dystrophy and Developmental Delays.

A healthy regimen in pregnant women should consist of:

(1) Vitamin D3 ( 5-8,000 I.U.’s per day)

(2) Glutathione and Super Oxide Dismutase enhancing foods and supplements ( I use Oxi-cell from Apex Energetics and Protandim, both which are available in our clinic)

(3) Probiotics (healthy bacteria to fight the bad ones) ( I use Probiotic Perls from Intergrated Therapeutics or Strentgia from Apex)

(4) Omega 3 fatty acids (I use Brain E from Apex Energetics or Pure EFA from Integrated Therapeutics)

(5) Regular exercise

(6) Brain based chiropractic adjustments to ensure proper central nervous system integrity and prevent pregnancy related back pain

If you have wondered if chiropractic nutritional approaches can help you, see a chiropractor or chiropractors. Better yet, see a chiropractic neurologist such as myself, Dr. Scott Brown

The detoxification process (a liver and gall bladder function) is a VERY important bodily process, especially for Americans and other industrialized nations suffering toxic overload from compromised foods, air, and water – just to name a few. Healthy detoxification is especially important when managing any chronically ill patient. Treatment of thyroid, blood sugar, adrenal, hormonal, cardiovascular, or immune disorders becomes difficult without healthy detoxification. Traditional  doctors recommend the same treatment or “one size fits all” for anyone whose blood work is outside a certain range. For instance, HRT or Hormone Replacement Therapy is recommended for everyone who has a hormone deficiency regardless of individual findings. If patients have detoxification issues causing their symptoms, using HRT or other drugs that utilize these pathways may exacerbate their dysfunctional metabolic pathways. For example, indexed scientific publications have demonstrated the adverse effects of impaired detoxification on chemical sensitivities, drug reactions, neurological disorders, autoimmune disorders, and chronic fatigue. If hepatic (liver) pathways are not restored, there is little hope of optimizing metabolic function again.

Natural agents that support Liver, Gall Bladder, and Bile function include: Milk Thistle, Panax Ginseng, Glutathione, Dandelion, Ginger, Vitamin C, Lecithin,  Phosphatidylcholine. These supplements can be purchased at health food stores. For liver problems, consult someone such as myself who specializes in functional metabolic problems. We can measure the results of  treatment with blood work and metabolic assessments. There are 4 conjugating pathways that must be monitored by the treating clinician: Methylation, Acetylation, Glucuronidation, and Sulfation. These processes are complex and require expert clinical support.

There are many liver and gall bladder cleanses out there. Some are appropriate and some are not. The best advice for someone who has metabolic problems such as a sluggish detoxification system, is to seek professional help.  I would like to help!

You might ask ,”Isn’t bone loss just due to a lack of calcium like we have always heard? No. Not if you understand the mechanisms of how the immune system works. The human body has first line defense mechanisms which include the intestinal mucosa, respiratory system, skin, and blood brain barrier which are the first protections against foreign invaders. When the invaders (viruses and bacteria) get past the first defense, the T-Helper Cell systems (TH-1 and TH-2) kick in. In the first stage, (TH-1) the inflammatory immune system mobilizes to fight the foreign invaders. Once the invaders have been conquered, the second stage (Th-2) produces B cells to carry away the conquered invaders and signal the inflammatory army to return to the barracks. This is the scenario in a good immune system. When either the TH-1 or TH-2 system becomes dominant, there is a runaway of the dominant system resulting in autoimmune diseases such as Hashimoto’s, Graves, Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Addison’s Disease, Lupus, etc.. Osteoporosis, although not “classified” as an immune disease, follows this trajectory. In Osteoporosis, one of the TH-2 lymphocytes called Interleukin 6 will stimulate bone destruction (osteoclastic activity) resulting in a slight degree of decreased bone mineral density (BMD) called OSTEOPENIA, before it advances into full blown OSTEOPOROSIS. The standard medical treatment does not address the immune system one iota,but instead promotes the use of the drug FOSAMEX (side effects include osteonecrosis or loss of blood supply to the bone, GI dysfunction, anxiety, social avoidance, congestive heart failure, kidney failure, hypertension, inflammation, and the list goes on).

BROWN CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGY: How we are different is that we do not look at Osteoporosis as merely a loss of bone but as an immune failure. Without addressing the immune system, the osteoporosis can continue to progress resulting in more bone loss. Since the Fosamex drug therapy robs the blood supply to the bone and creates an inflammatory condition, my bet is on building up the immune system which will decrease inflammation and increase osteoblastic (bone building) activity.

Our treatment consists of supporting regulatory T cell systems with Vitamin D, Glutathione, Superoxide Dismutase, and Omega 3 Fatty Acids. We must also make sure the body is producing enough Hydrochloric Acid (HCL). In Chiropractic Neurology, we focus on 3 things: brain, metabolism (blood sugar, thyroid, liver, etc.) and structure. Ours is a drug free surgery free approach to wellness. We’d like to help!
